If it's autumn in Brussels, it must be time for the annual gathering of commissioners and Big Business organised by BusinessEurope!
Stop corporate capture
New report from Vredeactie documents the symbiotic relationship between the arms industry and the European Union institutions
Following our launch of the ALTER-EU football cards revealing the Juncker Commissioners with the worst levels of corporate bias in terms of their lobby meetings, we have presented the week's social media activity in this Storify story.
Last Tuesday the European Commission hosted what it called the first #EUIndustryDay ever. But at ALTER-EU we see it as part of the excessive intimacy between the Commission and big business, which make every day at the Commission #EUIndustryDay.
You may have heard about the Commission's EU Industry day which is being held on Tuesday 28 February in the Charlemagne building: http://ec.europa.eu/growth/tools-databases/newsroom/cf/itemdetail.cfm?item_id=9063 It is organised by DG Grow and will feature Commissioners Juncker, Moedas, Bieńkowska, Katainen and maybe more. Corporate interests with speaking slots include BusinessEurope, European Roundtable of Industrialists and Orgalime and many, many others.
